Default RSPBA taking the p*ss?

Is it just me or does anyone else think the RSPBA are having a laugh by releasing twodvd's of the Gr 1 finals at a cost of 20 each!

Last year we got one with at least one performance from each band that qualified. This year we get two: the top 6 on one disc (ie shorter than last year) and the second with the rest.

And I'm pretty sure last years dvd was less than 20 notes too... Although I see it's now marked as 20 on the RSPBA website :rolleyes:

It's allot cheaper than the flight over, hotel, bar, and meal expenses! LOL..
I'm offering them at $39.95 each right now. Not sure what that is in UK pounds ( can't figure out the symbol for UK currency on my keyboard) but I think it's less.

1$ = 1.2 => 39.95 x 1.2 = 47.94

1 = 1.6 => 47.94 : 1.6 = 29.96

that's quite a lot of money imho...

Would be better to wait to buy'm until next year one's are out???

And then there's people complaining that kids download too much...
if it wasn't all that expensive, there would never have been a reason for people to have started downloading in the first place...

But anyway, that was not really the topic

Were those calculations based on Canadian or US dollars... As Bobby is Canadian...

Then again, the last time I crossed the border it was a whomping 9% exchange - $1 (US) = $1.09 (Cdn)
